1
Five persons – Ashi, Bala, Diya, Neha and Rupa were standing in a row facing north direction, but not necessarily in the same order. The distances between two adjacent persons are successive multiples of four (i.e. if the distance between the 1st and the 2nd person is 4 m, 1st and the 3rd person is 8m and between 1st and 4th person is 12 m and so on.)

(i.e. suppose Ashi stand on the left end of the line then the remaining people will stand at a distance as follows – 4 m, 8 m, 12 m and so on, from the end)

Ashi was standing at the left end of the line. Two persons were standing between Ashi and Bala. Diya stand second to the left of Bala. Rupa was an immediate neighbor of Diya. Only one person stands between Rupa and Neha. Joya starts walking from point X which was 8 m in north from Rupa. Joya moves 17 m in north-east direction to reach point Y. Point Y and Neha were inline vertically. Neha moves 6 m in the north direction and stops at point Z. Person Ashi moves in the direction to point Z. (Set 1 Q. 1)
 
What is the shortest distance between the initial position of Neha and final position of Joya?
» Explain it
D
Following the figure we made using the given information we can say that the shortest distance between the initial position of Neha and final position of Joya = (15 + 2 + 6) m = 23 m.

Point Y and Neha were inline vertically. Neha moves 6 m in the north direction and stops at point Z. Person Ashi moves in the direction to point Z. (Set 1 Q. 4)
 
If Ashi had stopped at point T which is 5m north from Bala instead of point Z, then what would be the shortest distance between initial and final position of Ashi?
» Explain it
C
Following the figure we can say that the shortest distance between initial and final position of Ashi is 13 m.


Note- T is the final position of Ashi as per the question.

= (12)2 + (5)2 = 169

= 13

Hence option C is correct.

There is PQ axis in such a way that P is in north and Q is in south direction. There is RS axis in such a way that R is in west direction and S is in east direction. PQ axis and RS axis intersect at a point X in such a way that PX is 20 m, XQ is 23 m, XR is 19 m, XS is 31 m.

Car A starts from point R and travels 28 m in south direction and then it takes a left turn and travels 45 m. Car B starts from point P and travels 26 m in east direction. Car C starts from point S and travels 7 m in north direction and then it takes a left turn and travel 5 m and again it takes a left turn and travels 30 m. (Set 2 Q. 1)

Reference:

Car A starts from point R and travels 28 m in south direction and then it takes a left turn and travels 45 m. Car B starts from point P and travels 26 m in east direction. Car C starts from point S and travels 7 m in north direction and then it takes a left turn and travel 5 m and again it takes a left turn and travels 30 m.
